About Sunbow Solar Flare Azalea

The Sunbow Solar Flare Azalea is a deciduous/semi-evergreen plant and will go dormant during the winter months. When this plant is ordered during the Fall/Winter expect seasonal foliage decline(discoloration, spots, leaf drop) or the plant to arrive completely dormant.

What to do when a dormant plant arrives:

  1. Unpackage on arrival and water
  2. Your plant will be ready to be planted in the landscape or in a container on arrival, or if you wish you can keep your new plant in its container until spring that is ok too
    • If planting in the landscape
      • Consider using a root stimulating fertilizer to get your plant working hard establishing its root system during the winter months
      • Use a heavy Layer of mulch to protect the unestablished roots from frost 
  3. Dormant plants do require some watering: once a week should be sufficient 
  4. When Spring arrives and your plant begins showing signs of new growth increase your watering schedule to 2 times every 7 to ten days until established, then water as needed. Apply a slow-release granular fertilizer to give your plant a great start

The Southern Living Plant Collection has recently released the Sunbow series of native Azaleas that bring exceptional color to the spring landscape. These native azaleas are deciduous and will go dormant during the winter. While they are dormant Sunbow Azaleas will set their buds on their branch tips, so you do not want to trim them until after you get your spring blooms! The Solar Flare Sunbow Azalea produces neon yellow single form blooms with shades of orange that have a sweet honey-suckle like fragrance that is great for attracting butterflies. These Azaleas grow well in a light shade to full sun location and should be planted in well-drained slightly acidic soil and fertilized early every spring with a slow release granular fertilizer.

Planting Instructions

  • water before planting
  • plant in Full Sun to Part Shade
  • dig hole 3X the width of pot,
  • backfill and plant 1″-2″ above soil level
  • water and add more soil if needed
  • mulch plants
  • fertilize in early spring

Sunbow Solar Flare Azalea Spacing Recommendations 

For a seamless planting, plant your Sunbow Solar Flare Azalea 3-3.5 feet apart. Otherwise, space them 4-5+ feet apart for gaps between plants.

    It was already pregrown and in a pot, so super easy to transfer to the ground. Also, super easy instructions for a new gardner.

    I bought 3 in all. One is starting to grow really well. One is slow but is startibg to sprout, and the first one I planted isn’t growing at all. I’m slightly concerned about that one… I’m hoping for large, full beautiful floweres by summer’s end…
